In a shallow bowl, mix the milk and eggs well. In another shallow bowl, mix the flour, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper.

Cut each mozzarella stick in half, forming 2-inch sticks. In this specific order dip each mozzarella stick into the egg-wash and then the dry ingredients bowl, making sure the sticks are fully coated.

Place the coated cheese sticks onto a large plate, forming one layer and cover with foil. Freeze the sticks for about two hours.

When the sticks are firm, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. On a vegetable-spray coated cookie sheet, arrange the sticks so that they form one layer on the pan, and then coat the sticks with vegetable oil spray.

Bake the sticks for 7 minutes, or until the coating forms a crispy brown crust.
